Mikel Arteta himself has admitted Arsenal’s Premier League clash with Manchester City is a huge match at the top of the table.

“It’s a massive game for both teams,” the Spaniard said. “It will give us a huge boost again if we go there and win it. Still there is a long, long, long way after to make the ground to win it.”

Win, and the Gunners can open up a four-point gap over Pep Guardiola’s side with just nine games remaining. Lose, and Arsenal could go from leading the way in a thrilling three way title race to being last in the chasing pack.

It’s crucial that Arteta gets his team selection right and there are plenty of dilemmas the Spaniard will have to deal with. Here football.london takes a look at who he might pick at the Etihad Stadium.
